The Silent Ballet Compilation : Volume 14 [LostChildren080]


Published March 6, 2010


The Silent Ballet: Volume 14

Fall 2009 - Winter 2010

As is becoming tradition around these parts, Volume 14 and 15 will be released in close proximity to one another. Each compilation continues the website’s commitment to spotlighting emerging musicians, featuring upcoming releases, and providing rare tracks from our favorite artists to our readers. Our focus is always on the international level, and we’ll never tire of searching for the next best thing in the most unusual of places. Our goal of a seven continent split is almost within our grasp, we’re just awaiting news of the first penguin-led post-rock group.
We’re also committed to our goal of providing quality music in a respectable format without charge. As one of life’s greatest pleasures, music should be freely available to all and resistant to commodification. As the Lost Children Netlabel looks ready to close in on its one hundredth release in 2010, we at The Silent Ballet are thankful that the label has stuck to its goals and continues to provide excellent music free of charge. Although it may seem like the music industry gets ragged on a lot, if there were more labels like Lost Children around, we think that the music climate would be a much more agreeable
place for musicians.
A big thanks goes out to all the artists and labels who made this project possible. Relevant links can be found below; any support is greatly appreciated.

Reviewer: kademlia - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - April 20, 2010
Subject: Nice ambient-electronic music
There are 12 tracks in this compilation album of ambient-electronic music. The tracks are combination of relaxing and emotionally stimulating music, but it is predominantly trance. Some tracks have a far more intense energy than others, so I am not quite sure whether I'd be playing that as background music for a "quiet me time." Most tracks, however, are decidedly soothing.

I especially liked the music of The Sight Below (Fervent) and Nervous Doll Dancing (Le Pommes). It is trance music fused with electronic touch and classical vibe that is perfect for quiet meditation, even yoga. Key Control (Radiant City) was a little bit out of place in the compilation, because it is the one song that I will not use for quiet contemplation. However, it is the kind of music that I am likely to play to wake me up when I get drowzy after lunch. The album runs for 75 minutes, good for warming up one's senses early in the day.
